What's Cool at Mercy School?

Shoe Box Appeal πŸ’—

All the pupils from our school supported team HOPE'S Shoe Box Appeal. The children filled 139 shoe boxes, as well as collecting €630.50. The shoe boxes were filled with something the children in poorer countries could wear, could write with, could wash with and something that would wow them like a toy or sweets. The gifts inside the shoe boxes will bring much joy to children in African countries and Eastern Europe this Christmas.
